From an article titled "Legendary golfer Byron Nelson, a faithful church member, dies at 94" from The Christian Chronicle:
Legendary golfer Byron Nelson, a lifelong Church of Christ member known as much for his gentlemanly conduct as his 52 PGA Tour victories, died today at age 94.
Nelson died at his Roanoke, Texas, home early this afternoon, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.
"We've lost a great man today," Abilene Christian University President Royce Money said of Nelson, a former ACU trustee who long supported the university's golf program. "Byron Nelson was a wonderful Christian example whose life had a profound and lasting impact on everyone he met."
Nicknamed "Lord Byron," Nelson established one of the most enduring records in sports when he won 11 straight tournaments â€” and a total of 18 â€” in his remarkable 1945 season.
A preview of Elliot's school picture:
Week 3 confirmed my week 1 heroics as a fluke. Again I managed to start an inactive player (Donte Stallworth this time), and there were only 4 touchdowns by players on my roster (3 of which were by players I benched). Needless to say, I got whipped.
This week's episode of the The Hill was really interesting...watching Wexler and his staff trying to decide whether or not to vote for the Republican-introduced bill to withdraw immediately from Iraq (which they introduced after Murtha called for withdrawal to basically force Democrats to vote to stay in Iraq) and what a game the whole process was.
